Subject: DSO in New York City Nov 30 2002
Story by Jim Hixenbaugh:
The vibrations in NYC are astounding. So much beautiful energy. If only they could improve the air quality.
The trip to the Right coast proved to be just what the doctor ordered. Many friends and family found their way to NYC to catch DSO on Broadway. This made the way for a 2 day party. I surrounded myself with friends and enjoyed four wonderful sets of Grateful Dead music served up like only DSO can.Good for the ears,escential for the soul. On that note let me take ya all on a little journey behind the music.
The first night the band was treated to the nicest suprise as many members of local NYC fire departments made there way backstage to meet the band. Now you know New Yorks are a breed apart, Ive always loved their straightforward attitudes. These firemen were the most couragous men you can imagine. I talked with a few and listened to them all as they told their tales of what everyday life brings when your job is saving lives in a big city.You can not listen and instantly have the uttermost respect for these guys.
They invited the band and friends to visit a nearby station the next day. I was along with camera in tow for a very special,a very sobering and humbling experence. These guys lost many close friends on that piviotal day in history which was 9-11. The station we went to lost a plack full of people and had on of their trucks completely smashed 3 stories underground. One super outgoing NYC fireman named Billy accounted how how the last time DSO was in NYC they were still looking for bodies to identify at ground zero and he got several of his "old deadhead firemen buddies" together and went to the show that night.
He said that the music lifted them above it all for a little while and they were able to return to their jobs somewhat recharged. Yes, music..you know it and I completely believe, "just listen to the music play"
Review by Web Ed:
That night the band played an "imagined setlist" which differ from the "original setlists" in that the band tries to suppose what might have been played at a particular Dead show that was scheduled but never happened. In this case they chose the July 76 Pittsburgh show that was cancelled.
The early highlights are a nice "Jack Straw" and "Deal" and a slow "Friend Of The Devil" before the "Dancin Wharf Rat" Sandwich to close the set.
Second set smokes all the way through and features a "Playin" sandwich that keeps coming back for more. The filler "China Rider" rocked the World. A great way to start off a tour!
